typo.php - is a crude syntax checker to avoid checking in files with simple
typos. It basically just loads each of our project files at once. Run from
cmdline and see if any parsing errors are reported.
extract.php - extracts translatable strings from our project files. It
currently doesn't pick up strings in other libraries we might be using such as
tinymce, simplepie, and the HTML parsers.
In order for extract to do its job, every use of the t() translation function
must be preceded by one space. The string also can not contain parentheses. If
parens are required in a string which requires translation, please use hex escapes.

should be placed in view/$lang/strings.php for automatic inclusion.

translate the software into "pirate", "surfer" or merely to replace certain
text which you don't care for.
